PSP8620475 - Cell Modem Instructions
Section 1 - Hubbell Cell Modems for the Versa-Tech II Recloser
An external Hubbell Cell Modem can be attached to the Versa-Tech II Recloser as seen in Figure 1-1
to enable remote communication functionality via the cellular network. The Hubbell Cell Modem will
provide the medium for complete Versa-Tech II Programmer functionality. Recloser status and real-time
load current can be read remotely along with all recloser logs and settings. The recloser settings can
be remotely modified. The recloser can be remotely opened and closed and also be remotely set into
Non-Reclose and Hot-Line Tag modes.
There are two types of Hubbell Cell Modems available: the GSM Cell Modem (PSC8620079) and the
CDMA Cell Modem (PSC8620082). The PSC8620082 CDMA modem works with the Verizon Wireless
Network in the U.S. The PSC8620079 is a GSM modem and requires an activated SIM card to be installed
prior to use.

Section 2 - Cell Modem Status
The Versa-Tech II Programmer allows the user the ability to read the cell modem status details. After
connecting to the Versa-Tech II Recloser, users can navigate to the "Cell Modem Status" window (Menu
Bar > Adv Status > Cell Modem Status). The status fields seen in Figure 2-1 provide useful indicators
about device connectivity and identification numbers required for modem activation.
Figure 2-1: Cell Modem Status
IP Address: An IP address is a 32-bit number that uniquely identifies a device on an IP network. The number
is represented in four octets as seen in Figure 2-1. The IP address will be provided by the Network Service
Provider once a data connection has been established. If a data connection has not been established or
the device has not been correctly activated, the IP Address will be "0.0.0.0".
Signal Strength (RSSI): RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indication) is the signal strength of the cellular
network connection in dB. The "Signal Strength" field will be populated with one of the following
possible values based on the : "-113 dBm or less", "-111 dBm", "-109 to -53 dBm", "-51 dBm or greater", "Not
known or not detectable". A signal strength of "-109 to -53 dBm" or higher is sufficient for cell modem
communication. If the cell modem has not caught the cellular network, the Signal Strength will be listed
as "Not known or not detectable".
Connected Network: The name of the cellular network to which the modem is connected is displayed
in the "Connected Network" field. In Figure 2-1, the modem is connected to the AT&T network.
SIM#: A SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) Card is a portable memory chip that has to be inserted in
the GSM Cell Modem in order to communicate via the cellular network. The SIM card stores the unique
information needed to identify and authenticate subscribers to the network. Each SIM card is uniquely
identified by a 20 digit ICCID (Integrated Circuit Card Identifier). The SIM# field in the "Cell Modem Status"
window in the User Interface shows the unique 20 digit ICCID. If no SIM card is inserted, the SIM# will be
shown to be "Invalid". Since the CDMA modem does not require a SIM card, the SIM# for CDMA modems
is shown as "N.A" for Not Applicable.
Modem IMEI/ESN/MEID: IMEI and MEID numbers are numbers used to uniquely identify cell modem
hardware. IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) is a unique identifier for GSM Cell Modems. An
MEID (Mobile Equipment Identifier) is a unique identifier for CDMA modems. MEID/IMEI numbers may
be requested by Network Service Providers to activate the cell modem. See Section 3 for instructions to
activate a CDMA modem and Section 4 for instructions to activate a GSM Modem.

Section 3 - Hubbell CDMA Cell Modem - PSC8620082
Instructions to Activate a Hubbell CDMA Cell Modem: Attach the CDMA Cell Modem to the VersaTech II Recloser using a 7/64" Hex Allen Wrench. Ensure there is no battery inserted in the Versa-Tech
II Recloser and there is no current passing through the unit. Insert a healthy battery into the recloser
unit. Pull red lever down. This will ensure that the external cell modem will be powered for 60 minutes.
Wait 5 minutes to allow the cell modem to initialize. Connect to the recloser unit using the Versa-Tech
II Programmer using either a USB to mini-USB cable that can be inserted in the mini-USB port on the
cell modem or via WiFi or SiFLEX communication modes. Navigate to "Cell Modem Status" Window
(Menu Bar > Adv Status > Cell Modem Status). Note down the MEID of the CDMA module seen in the
"Cell Modem Status" window. For example, the MEID seen in Figure 3-1 is A1000009470859. Contact
Network Service Provider to activate modem and provide the CDMA Modem MEID.

The Network Service Provider could take several hours to activate the modem. Once the service provider
confirms modem activation, ensure the recloser unit is placed in a location with good Verizon Wireless
cellular reception and power on the recloser unit. Pull red lever down. This will ensure that the external cell
modem will be powered for 60 minutes. Wait 5 minutes to allow the cell modem to initialize. Connect to
the recloser unit using the Versa-Tech II Programmer. Navigate to the "Cell Modem Status" window (Menu
Bar > Adv Status > Cell Modem Status). Ensure that the "Connected Network" is "VerizonWireless" and
the Signal Strength is greater than -109 dBm as seen in Figure 3-2. In Figure 3-2, note that the modem
has not yet received an IP address. In order to receive an IP address, the modem has to be provisioned
by a process called OTASP.
Figure 3-2: CDMA Cell Modem Status After Network Activation
OTASP (Over-the-air Service Provisioning) enables an activated modem to be programmed with required
system parameters such as NAM (Number Assignment Module) operational parameters, network security
parameters and roaming parameters required to establish a data connection. To provision the CDMA
Cell Modem, navigate to the "Cell Modem Settings" tab (Menu Bar > Setup > WiFi/Cell Modem Settings
> Cell Modem Settings) as seen in Figure 3-3. Click "START OTASP" to initiate over-the-air provisioning.

Once OTASP is performed successfully, a popup window indicating that the process is complete will
appear as seen in Figure 3-5.
Figure 3-5: OTASP Successful
After successful OTASP, view the "Cell Modem Status" window to ensure that the modem receives an IP
address. It might take several minutes to receive an IP address as the modem is re-initialized with new
settings after OTASP. The "Cell Modem Status" window does not automatically update and the user will
have to re-open the "Cell Modem Status" window to receive the updated status. The CDMA Modem
should now receive an IP Address as seen in Figure 3-5. The IP Address should be noted down as it is
needed to connect to the Versa-Tech II Recloser remotely. Proceed to Section 5 (Common Settings) to
program the settings required for enabling remote communication using the Versa-Tech II Programmer.

Section 5 - Common Settings
Using the "Cell Modem Settings" tab seen in Figure 5-1, the following settings that are common to both
GSM and CDMA Cell Modems can be programmed:
TCP Listen Port: To exchange data over TCP, the cell modem needs to be programmed with a port
number. Upon power on, the Versa-Tech II Recloser will detect the presence of a cell modem and initiate
a TCP connection on the specified TCP Listen Port. The TCP Listen Port can be programmed to a value
between 1-65535. The default value is 20000.
TCP Inactivity Timer: The TCP Inactivity Timer determines the inactivity time in seconds before a TCP
socket connection to the cell modem is automatically disconnected. Any TCP data transmission will reset
the timer. The TCP Inactivity Timer can be programmed to a value between 1 and 65535 seconds. The
default value is 60 seconds. By default, after 60 seconds of inactivity, the socket will be disconnected
and the user will have to re-initiate the TCP session.
Gateway Configuration: To exchange data over TCP, the cell modem needs to be programmed with the
IP address of the remote TCP server or host. The Gateway Configuration setting i.e. the address of the
remote server or host has to be obtained from the Network Service Provider.
